- Historical building
It is a unique property, with an amazing view of the valley and the Chianti rolling hills, whose origins date back to 1200, when it was used as a guard watchtower. In fact, the particular dominant position allowed to control a large area of land.
Today the building, after a careful restoration which has preserved the architectural features, is in perfect condition offering the rare opportunity to live in a page of ancient history without renouncing privacy, outdoor spaces and a landscape whose beauty is impossible to describe in a few words.
With access from inside and outside the walls of the old town, the tower-house is disposed on three levels occupying both the body of the tower and a portion of another building for a total of 170 square meters. Currently it is divided into two separate units that can be reunited with the only reopening of a staircase.
It consists of 7 rooms, one with fireplace, 3 bathrooms and 2 storerooms. The property includes a garden of approx. 200 square meters, terrace of 20 sqm and a balcony of 4 sqm, all of them overlooking the valley.
A superb property to enjoy an endless panorama of the Chianti hills with pleasant outdoor spaces and to live the quiet rhythm of a village not assaulted by the mass tourism.
BARBERINO VAL D'ELSA
The town of Barberino Val d'Elsa is a beautiful medieval village surrounded by the green Tuscan countryside between Florence and Siena. Situated along the ancient Cassia road which connects Florence to Rome, it offers a stunning panorama of the Chianti region.
Walking in the center it's possible to enjoy the quiet and peaceful tranquility of the town, breathing in a little of its glorious history. The history of Barberino is closely tied to Semifonte, a nearby town that was completely destroyed by the Florentines in 1202. Legend has it that the stones used to fortify the city, which became a Florentine outpost, came from the destroyed remains of Semifonte. Barberino maintains its original medieval look with an elliptical plan crossed by two longitudinal streets
